I came here the night before Hunahpu's release 2012, which was the barrel aged beer night. We arrived around 5 and the place was fairly crowded, but certainly not packed. It is down the street from the gulf on a nice quiet street with other shops and houses. It looks like a beach house with a large patio out front with plenty of seating. A large opening brings you inside the main bar, which is quite small. The theme is certainly tropical, but done in a very classy way. I really enjoyed the atmosphere here.
Peg and Doug were both there while I was at the bar and both answered a few questions I had concerning the bar and the beer. Both were extremely friendly. Our server was also very helpful and friendly.
They had Rare DOS, RareR DOS, Funky DOS, Batch 100, and Barrel Aged Porter on tap, all remarkable. I apparently just missed Double Rainbow Jelly Donut - oh well. They also had an IPA on tap and maybe a couple others. I wish they had a few special non-dark beers, but a very small complaint. They also had quite a few guest bottled beers, but that was not going to happen.
The food is fresh Mexican. It was quite tasty. I was very impressed and would come here just for the food.

This review covers the pub on Central Av in St. Pete.
This place at first looks like a cold, concrete cell. However, another look around reveals a whole bunch of interesting art and some very cozy little two top tables. A nice long L shaped bar and two large blackboards with the beer lists. Garage doors open on the sidewalk, allowing street life viewing and seating. Good stuff.
Came here specifically for the daily barrel aged releases during TBBW and certainly not disappointed. I mean, how good is a dulce de leche stout with hazelnuts aged in a whiskey barre? We know they make some great examples of big ass barrel aged stouts, but they also are dialing in some nice hoppy pales. Crank is practically Zombie Dustian good.
Contrary to the people at Peg's, the bartender was a little cooler than thou, but what the heck. I really dig what these people are doing. Highly recommended.
